Foodie Files: Uncorked Kitchen
So I messed up. I forgot to book my tickets to Uncorked Kitchen's Oyster Fest, realized it at the last minute, and the event was sold out. Sigh. Well, that didn't stop me from crashing after the Fest and sipping some wine sadly after the event.
It was my first time at Uncorked Kitchen. Uncorked Kitchen is located in the Park Meadows area, and they are known for their cooking classes and food and wine events. I decided to have a drink at their upstairs Wine Bar, which features small plates and a nice selection of local and national wines. The second I sat down, I saw this amazing France vs. California menu, where you can snag a flight of each for $14. Done and done!
Two gorgeous reds and two gorgeous white appears with generous pours! In a rare circumstance, I actually liked all four wines! Obviously each were unique in body and finish, but all of them were high quality. My favorite? The Raeburn Chardonnay. Light and refreshing, and the finish was reminiscent of creme brûlée as described. Perfect for the summer!
In order to drink responsibility, I decided to try some of their small plates. I ordered the deviled eggs and the shortib sliders, which came with a side of mac and cheese. The short ribs sliders were delicious with their vinegar-based slaw, and the mac was smothered in my favorite Gruyere cheese. I LOVED the deviled eggs which were drizzled with a spicy paprika oil and sprinkled with teeny pieces of chorizo. Yum!
I loved my weekend happy hour at Uncorked Kitchen. I did not get a chance to capture the views from the wine bar, but the patio overlooks the mountains--giving the wine bar a cozy feel with spectacular views! I will definitely return to try out one of their cooking classes or wine tastings.
